1. What you’ll need for one cup of buttermilk substitute:
• Just under one of cup milk
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice or white vinegar
2. Place lemon juice or vinegar in a measuring cup.
3. Add enough milk to make one cup of liquid.
4. Let stand five minutes.
If you have more time, you can make your own buttermilk. Take note, though, that you’ll need to buy a small amount of cultured buttermilk as a starter.
1. Assemble these ingredients:
• 8 ounces of cultured buttermilk for each quart of new buttermilk you plan to make (Choose a carton labeled, “Active cultures.”)
• 3 cups of store-bought milk
• Clean quart jar with lid
2. Pour the 3 cups of milk into the jar. Add the cultured buttermilk.
3. Shake the jar vigorously, and let stand at room temperature for 24 hours.
4. Taste the buttermilk. If it is not sour enough, leave for another 12 hours. You can
tell the buttermilk has cultured when it coats the glass.
1. The acidity of buttermilk allows it to keep in the refrigerator for two weeks.
2. If you want to make larger quantities of buttermilk, maintain the one-to-three ratio of ingredients.
